Assigning to Jeroen as it is a highly requested feature & he should be familiar with this aspect from the WLM work

Fixed by r96988

Unfortunately that was not really what we were after. I'm asking Jeroen to revert r96988 and I made a more explicit spec here:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UploadWizard/CustomWikiTextLicenseFeature

And I'm trying to get community feedback here:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Village_pump#Proposed_feature_for_UploadWizard_-_enter_license_in_custom_wikitext

So, can I start tackling this, or do we wait for more community feedback?

Jeroen: personally I'm no longer sure what the right implementation is. A textarea is easy, but we ought to ensure that an accepted license tag is eventually invoked by that wikitext. And I see no obvious way to do that programmatically. I thought that if there was some sort of hook that we could invoke on template transclusions, but that doesn't seem to exist, and even if it did we would only want it when parsing this special kind of wikitext... so not practical.

So, the other answer is to do an autocompletion field with items drawn from Category:License tags. That makes a lot more sense to me. And we don't have to deal with the {{self| }} variants because this is only for third party stuff anyway. I don't know if any of those License tags need arguments or if we can just invoke them by name.

What do you think?

Anyway I could wait another day or two... I only asked for feedback on Friday when most Europeans were asleep.

+1 for the autocompletion field. This seems the most simple and elegant solution.

Anyway I could wait another day or two...

Sure. Please poke me when I ought to start on it then :)

I'm actually about to commit this myself. I ended up changing things a bit, it was harder than it looks.

Oh, cool - assigned to you then :)

file page tag: SUBST:custom (like it is set up with {{uwl}}) please otherwise we Commons people are not able to add e.g. date tags.

Oh, but please tell me before switching it live. The template on commons needs to be adjusted for this.

{{subst:custom license marker added by UW}} would be fine now. Prepared to be switched live at any time.
